Myostois pulvinaris - ph of potting mix ?
« on: October 02, 2020, 03:30:26 PM »
Question from Stefanie Von Loh to Scottish Rock Garden Club on Facebook

I would like to ask for advice- what kind of substrate is best for Myosotis pulvinata? Especially pHwise? It will sit in a pot, no rain, sheltered but light place. Thank you!




Now, I think Stephanie  means Myosotis pulvinaris ......   help as  to ph of  potting  mix, please?

Fast draining substrate with lots of grit is good. Most NZ plants are not too fussy about ph of soil - even those growing on marble in NZ grow well enough on a more acid soil in cultivation. Most of their hills are acid in ph level.
